Among the sectors, auto along with the pharma index added half a percent each while the midcap and small indices are also trading in the green.
ICICIdirect on market outlook: Nifty consolidated with 11,500 acting as a midpoint. Buying in banking and pharma led the index to end positive with a decent gain of 80 points. On the option front, additions were seen in ATM Call and Put strike. We feel a consolidation move will take place before crossing the 11,600 hurdle. Nifty futures ended at a premium of 5 points while IV fell by 3%.
